Evelyn's Background

Evelyn studied psychology, sociology, anthropology, and philosophy; worked as a peer counselor with at-risk youths; and earned a degree in Social Sciences from Portland State University. She feels fortunate to have learned from experienced guides, mentors, counselors, Indigenous leaders, and her mother, a classically trained therapist.

Upon the legalization of psilocybin assisted therapy in Oregon, Evelyn became one of the first people to acquire OHA approved training through the Changa Institute. She began working in Jamaica, then in Oregon soon after service centers began opening their doors. She is one of the more experienced facilitators in the state with the legal model of psilocybin. 

Evelyn's Approach

Evelyn radiates radical acceptance of the authentic, wild self, and embraces the entirety of the human experience. Her methodology is highly influenced by tantra philosophy, evolutionary psychology, and personal revelations from plant medicine itself. 

She believes that all our feelings are sacred and important. Listening to these feelings, honoring them, and learning how to process them is an important key to unlocking our full potential while repressed and unprocessed feelings manifest as mental and physical health problems.

Evelyn provides grounded guidance for accessing and honoring your feelings in a safe space during preparation. For integration, she helps you unpack and rediscover the lessons you explored through your feelings, and how to use these lessons to become a more authentic version of yourself.
